Nancy Hulse Multimedia Performances About Violence Against Women
The following is a technical guide / requirements for the Nancy
"That Ain't no way to treat a lady" &
A Rose by Any Other Name...
Nancy Hulse normally travels with all other necessary equipment,
props and operator.
SPACE: Because of the interactive nature
of the show, Ms. Hulse prefers NOT to perform on a stage. A lounge,
or other large meeting room is best as it allows her to enter the
audience at will and maintain a level of intimacy even with large
groups. The actual performance space is modest and the technical
setup is flexible enough to adapt to various room sizes and shapes.
NOTE IMPORTANT Minimum ceiling height 9 feet.
The most critical aspects of this setup involve the video projection
and the ability of the audience to see the screen. It is also
important that the room can be DARKENED as
completely as possible.
AUDIO: The audio for the show is made up
of pre-recorded music and voice. The show can be LOUD
VIDEO: Video and Computer graphics are
projected through an EIKI 350 LCD video projector onto an 8' wide
"screen" made from prop elements. Projection distance is
critical as the projector can only focus from a maximum distance of
25'. The projector is normally mounted with the lights on a stand,
but in larger venues it can be separated from the lighting location.
LIGHTING: A variety of lighting
instruments are used.
POWER: Nancy Hulse has tried to keep
power requirements to a minimum in order for its shows to be
performed in a variety of locations. A single 20-amp outlet has
proved adequate although 2 separate 20-amp outlets are ideal. Please
be aware that coffee pots draw ALOT of power - brewing needs to be
restricted to before or after the show if the same room circuits are
used. It is also helpful if someone in attendance knows where the
circuit breakers are.
PERFORMANCE TIME AND LOAD-IN: The Actual
show time lasts about 1 hour. Time should be allowed for discussion.
Set-up time requires a minimum of 2 - 3 hours prior
to performance including a brief sound and lighting check.
Extra time should be allowed for loading into the building and room
if necessary. Break down can be accomplished in about 1 hour.
Assistance in loading and unloading is always appreciated.
PARKING: Nancy Hulse usually travels
in a small van or truck. Arrangements should be made to
allow for load-in as close to the building as possible (loading dock
or permission to drive in restricted vehicle areas) This load-in time
needs to be arranged for a minimum of 1 hour before and after the
show. If at all possible it is preferred that the van stay in this
space for the duration of the show (5hr) as it also serves as
technical storage. If it must be moved, please try
to supply a secure area as close to the building as possible. Also
add some extra set-up time (1/2 hr) to allow for the moving)
